BV Foot Clinic: Don't Let Diabetes Get Its Hands on Your Feet

                                  Don't Let Diabetes Get Its Hands on Your Feet

Millions of people have diabetes, and more are diagnosed with it every day. Its implications vary from person to person, depending on many factors, including one’s age and overall health, the severity of the condition, and whether it can be controlled by diet, or if medication is required. However, all diabetics must monitor their blood sugar, and their diets, as their bodies can’t produce, or properly use, insulin.  

Meticulous foot care is also essential, as even minor wounds can have serious consequences, as can diabetic neuropathy - burning, tingling, and numbness in the feet - if it progresses. If you have diabetes, come see us for a thorough examination and a personalized, easy-to-follow foot care plan that will help keep diabetes from getting its hands on your feet!
